SEC Commissioners to Consider Fund Advertising Rules
July 6, 2012 § 3 Comments
Although the proposed rules have yet to be released, the SEC has announced that they will be considering rules to repeal the ban on general solicitation and advertising at an August 22 open meeting. The SEC is expected to release its proposed rules sometime prior to the August meeting.
The repeal is mandated by Title II of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act passed in April 2012.
